My name is Sorcha Conway and it has been brought to my attention that a person here who posts under the name of JBaker515 has plagiarized a poem called QUICKSILVER.....this is my work and was first posted and placed under copyright at the Starlite Cafe on 27/3/2001....this can be confirmed by going to the site and either typing in my name as Author which is Sorcha...or by typing in the title Quicksilver.... I have contacted this site plus the person who stole my work. I will take further action as this person shows disregard for me as an Author and for all of us that struggle to learn our craft...not to steal from others..I am an established Author and this has angered me greatly....as this is not the first time this has occured so I will no longer settle for the poem being deleted. There are and there will be consequences for this persons actions....be well and safe, Sorcha Conway....Author of QUICKSILVER...

Hi Sorcha. I would have sent an email, but your address doesn't show.

Be assured that this situation is being handled as quickly as it can be. Please contact any of the Administrators if you have a question.

Sorcha,

Are your absolutely sure about that? If so, I'm sorry you have to go through that.
I hope you get to the bottom of it.

When I first read this topic I was upset and didn't know how to reply. I still don't know, yet I feel I cannot let this go by as if I didn't see it. (I just hate ignorance!)

Somehow I keep hoping this is based on some kind of misunderstanding and know Ron will get to the bottom of it. Sigh... this is so sad.

It is being handled, and quite well, Poets.  Thank you Sorcha, for bringing it to our attention.
